The Food Project is pleased to announce a $25,000 grant from the Aetna Foundation. Funding will support a number of community outreach and education programs in the Dudley neighborhood of Boston including:
Build-a-Garden – which builds raised-bed gardens for residents in the community and provides support for recipients to grow their own food. Participants are provided with seeds, seedlings, informational workshops, growing guides, and other support.
Farm to Family – a program that aims to remove barriers to access healthy food by allowing low-income families in Dorchester and Roxbury to purchase a weekly share of produce from The Food Project’s farms during the summer and fall at a reduced price. Participants can also use SNAP benefits to purchase their weekly shares.
